She Said Yes

Happy Father’s Day! Many thanks to all the kids for celebrating with pops on Woodwind.  This evening, Woodwind ghosted in and out of the ever peaceful Weems Creek.  With the sun slung low, the schooner projected a tall shadow of her sails on the high banks.  Then, after a day of light and confused airs, a …

Truly amazing wind conditions out there. …
